Re: fingering orientation

Thanks for reply. I didnt found in the documentation how long the fingeringOrientations are active. I expected they are global from the point they occure. But it looks like they are reset, when I open a new voice.

I have another question with the example. I want to add dynamics. I already added the \p (piano). But I also need an \< (crescendo) and \> (descrescendo) in the first and second measure respectively. But I never got any dynamics except the piano. Can you say me how to do?

Best regards,

It looks as though the command to set fingeringOrientations was not affecting the lower voice when you created multiple voices using <<{ \\ }>>. If you put the \set fingeringOrientations command inside the {} of the voice that actually contains the fingerings, then you get the orientation you want. This, however, makes the spacing messy as there's a documented bug having to do with the spacing of fingerings to the left of arpeggios. Here's the working code (with the buggy spacing):

\version "2.11.62"
\include ""

upperStaff = \relative c' {
\clef treble \key as \minor \time 2/4

\repeat volta 2 {
\set fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
<ces-4 es-3 ces'-1>4(\p^"Andante" <ces es ces'>) |

{ b'\arpeggio( as) }
{ \set fingeringOrientations = #'(left) <ces,-4 es-3>2\arpeggio }
>> |

lowerStaff = \relative c {
\clef bass \key as \minor \time 2/4
as | as

\book {
\score {
\context PianoStaff <<
\set PianoStaff.connectArpeggios = ##t
\context Staff = upper \upperStaff
\context Staff = lower \lowerStaff
\layout { }

Hope that helps,

I write a piece for harp. I need sometimes fingering information for the player.
While sometimes fingering above the staff is ok, I need it at the left side under some circumstances. In the example I want to write the fingering number for the notes "ces" and "es" at the left side of the arpeggio, but I did not succeed.

How can I achieve this request?
